Can someone give me some ideas on how to clean a grubby Musto Coastal trousers and jacket. The dirt is mostly teak-oil from sitting on or rubbing against treated wood, and coal-dust from the quays just across the harbour.
My first instinct was to just put them in the washing machine with a mild detergent, but I seem to recall that that may destroy the impermeabilization.
- Is giving them a wash in a machine a good idea?
- With what detergent?
- Hot or cold water?
- Can the impermeabilization be restored or refurbished?
- If so, by applying what substance (liquid) ?
Other than the dirty cuffs and trouser bottoms, the suits are in good condition, as they don't get much use in our climate, so replacing is not an option !!!!
